Finding good TMS software for carriers
Finding the right TMS software for your company is the key—it may not be the cheapest or the one that’s advertised all over industry websites and publications. Our suggestion is that you look for TMS software that is:
User-friendly – if not, your team won’t use it
“Smart” or optimized – optimization technology has been around long enough that it should be incorporated in your TMS. Make sure you find software that has been designed by a team with experience in the field.
Budget-friendly – there’s no need to spend a fortune on TMS software these days; there are excellent options that are affordable, and as mentioned above, for as little as $2 a day.
Offers a 30-day trial – if a software vendor won’t let you take their software for a test drive, ask yourself why. What are they afraid you’ll find out? And also important: Look for a 30-day trial that doesn’t require a credit card. You don’t want to get locked in because you got busy and forgot to cancel.
No contract – you don’t need no stinkin’ contract! A good company is willing to earn your business every month.
Mobile app – these days a mobile app for both management and driver is a necessity. And make sure it does what you need it to do (like upload documents on the road) and isn’t just a pretty face.
